I cleaned out the garage on the Toy Hauler and went thru a fitment exercise to see if the bike will fit.

It does, but the windscreen has to be dropped about 2 inches before I setup the tiedowns to secure it while on the road.

Sounds like you got out of Florida just in time. Before replacing cc microswitch check the brass bushing. If it's got play in it could be the culprit. Cyclemax, $8.50 plus shipping.

Just finished installing Baker lower trike wings (dark smoke), they look good and I hope they are as functional as advertised!

I don't have the lowers, I have the ones just below the knee, and the ones that fit above that.

I find the middle ones the most important on the trike. The wind comes around the sides, hits the rear fenders and comes right up my back and on my passenger's sides. The mid wings help cut this down.

Yep, I'm sure you're right, its just that they are also the most expensive!

Will be getting our 1800 out of the Hangar tomorrow and all checked out.  Have to have it ready for Clinton lake this weekend. 

 

We have the foot wings, the mid wings and the under the mirror wings.  We also have the stuffed animals on the luggage rack and that seems to cut the wind from coming up Estella's back.  Besides, the bears get beautiful young ladies in Porsche roadsters to pull up along side and wave like you were their long lost friend.  Made an old man's heart skip a few beats.  The Bride says she was waving at the animals that were waving to her.

On tuesday, I rode to wally world to pick up oil and a filter so i could change the oil in the FIL's cage.  It was better than not riding at all, like on monday.

Watched it rain most of the day, but it stopped long enough to take the Aspy out for a short test drive.  I removed the ATF from the front forks and installed Belray 15 weight fork oil in its place.  Ride improvement was immediate and excellent.  Ninety two MPH, no wiggle, no wobble, smooth as she could be.  I'm still going to replace the front wheel bearings.

The 1200's are great when sorted out properly, the suspension upgrades front as well as rear are mandatory on any wing, the stock suspension is just not up to the task!!!

I packed and repacked the wing on Saturday, until I got (almost) everything needed for MrsY and I to do an overnight camping trip to the Clinton Lake Illinois MnG.  We had a sunny ride there and we headed home before the forecasted rain could catch us.  It made for a nice 210 mile total ride.

Started out for a ride, but after about 10 miles, the dark clouds started dripping pretty bad, so I went home.

Mounted an aluminum plate on the rear rack, moving the trunk to the rear about 3".  The wife is no longer squished and I've got room to stretch.  I just have to watch how much weight I put in there as it moves that weight from over the rear of the bike to over the air behind the bike..
